Hello! That time of year is upon us again where there is little to no sunlight...which leads to me running around the house looking for the best light source to take pictures. I think I need to invest in a lamp or finally make a light box. I have no idea what kind of lamp to buy though. All I know is, English Winter = dull!!
I decided to try a cling film mani at last (or saran wrap/plastic wrap, whatever you may call it) after seeing how simple it is and how nice the effect can be.
My base colour is Barry M Turquoise, and the top colour is Barry M Grey.
They're easy to do. All you need to do is -
- Prepare a few small balls of scrunched up cling film, one for each nail
- Paint on your first colour and leave to completely dry
- Paint on a coat of your second colour, and immediately dab a ball of cling film all over your nail, picking up your second colour as you go. Finish with a top coat to smooth it out.
The result is this water colour/marbled effect.
So pretty! Definitely going to try more colour combinations.
